HC Deb 26 January 1987 vol 109 c22W
Mr. Robert

Hughes asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what terms and conditions a list of overseas voters is available to political parties; and if any political party has been supplied with such a list.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

There is no centrally maintained list of overseas electors.

The electoral registration officer of each constituency is required to supply, on request and free of charge, four copies of the list of overseas electors for the constituency to a prospective candidate or to a person acting on his behalf, such copies may be requested at any time, but may not be supplied more than once. Information about the number of candidates so supplied is not recorded centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
